Do you have a voltmeter to test each battery and the battery pack voltage? Hw old are the batteries? Fully charged, the battery pack should be close to 54 volts! Low speed and low power is typically low battery voltage.

Batteries are new reading 50 volts
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 5 months ago

50 volts is too low for new, fully charged batteries, the charger may not be staying on long enough to top the batteries up, as it should read close to 54 volts when fully charged. Does charger run close to 8 hours before shutting off?

It,s not the batteries! They are fully charged.
Electric Vehicle Mechanic: Curtis B., Other replied 5 months ago

OK, you are sure. Even though the batteries are not showing t obe fully charged. I will opt out, and see if someone else can help. Sorry.
